|PROGRAM TITLE & SPEAKER- Craft Talk by Frankie Conrad
Frankie is a Med Tech at Community Memorial in Ventura. A former EMT and ER Tech,, he decided to specialize in Radiology. He talked about patients’ natural fear of the MRI experience, trapped in a narrow tube with that hammering sound. In the Q&A Lou Torres asked about how Frankie reassures the patients and he replied “patience.” Which surprisingly to President Linda, me, and maybe others, he learned in the Marine Corps as a transport helicopter crew chief in Afghanistan. Wow! Other questions related to his father-in-law Dennis Guernsey who was not present to defend himself.
